.n., that is the date of the so-called partition of palestine resolution, dating back to 1947 by united nations. that has symbolic meaning as well. and the israelis, not only the israelis have opposed it, but the united states has opposed it. and it will pass most likely because this is a general assembly issue not a security council issue. to but the united states -- -- they are trying to make a point by retaliating in some big way. that will have a cost for the palestinian authority. what does that mean? hamas will emerge as an even bigger winner. there will say, look at what he is getting you have got to vote, but what good did that to do? our way is the best day. get missiles. so that is the political dilemma for the united states. host: leila on our line for independents, go ahead. caller: my comment is, you always have to negotiate with people. when negotiated not only with friends, but with enemies. the enemies have to be [indiscernible] what we initially wanted to do when we sent the president oversees. -- once and for all. guest: hamas is delivering in gazgaza. my own position, just fo

is formerly the u.s. ambassador for special political affairs to the united nations. it's nice to have you with us, sir. >> good morning, soledad. >> so yesterday we were reporting at this hour that there were reports that the aggression would stop within hours. then there reports that there would be a 24-hour calm period, that came from a senior hamas official. then we know that hillary clinton was in the region, going from meeting to meeting with netanyahu, and heading eventually to meet with mohamed mursi. now we have this violence with a bus. has the window of opportunity, which it seemed like the secretary was trying to exploit, or leverage, has that closed, do you think, with this explosion? >> first of all, this was a reprehensible terrorist attack. but i don't think it closes the window. you've got these very serious talks ongoing about a long-term solution to things like, you know, border security, the rocket attacks, and a lot of international pressure brought to bear by both arab countries, the united states, and the u.n. so, no, i think that this represents an escalation, but i
support. >> ambassador rice has done an excellent job at the united nations and highly qualified for any number of positions in the foreign policy arena and i will leave it at that. >> today's meeting place between ambassador rice and her staunchest critics on capitol hill. after his reelection president obama took exception to republican senators critical of rice saying if they want to come after anyone they should come after me. >> gretchen: we remember that. why is no one talking about susan rice, she went out on the talk shows and got the talking points from the white house and said what they wanted her to say. >> brian: she said the intelligence. >> gretchen: that's why she would be secretary of state. she did what she was asked to do and did it well and it worked with the electorate you could argue and now she will be secretary of state. what is going to stop it? >> steve: not necessarily. senate aides. administration is having her sell herself up on capitol hill today and what she is doing, she is appealing to the moderates, in particular republicans from georgia and tennessee. th
's dealing with syria gaza, the congo. she's still our representative to the united nations. so while we're talking this foolishness about her appearance on a tv talk show, what signal is that sending to the rest of the world? i do think they've got themselves backed in a corner now. i think the other agenda going on is the senate race. so i think that it needs to stop. i hope it will today. i know she's back on the hill again today. >> bill: she is. first of all, it is unfair at so many levels. i think it is sexist and racist. ambassador to the united nations, god knows is not responsible for security. embassies and consulates around the world number one. we talked about this earlier. number two, all she did in her appearance on the sunday shows and in her testimony right after the incident in benghazi on the hill was say here is what our intelligence agencies are telling us at this point. we don't know everything about it yet. you know. and that's -- that's kind of classic. you never know, right? immediately, al
organizations and united nations looking at it to pinpoint what they're stopping and not stopping. of course, it is also the movement of people in and out. palestinians in and out of gaza. that will be lifted, as well. but it's put a real strangle hold on the economy of gaza and something people who live there want to be released. the concern from the israeli side is what's going in and what's going out and are they preventing arms going in and it's -- it's a complicated issue. as i say, they did agree to easing some of it but we don't know what that looks like in the next 24 hours. >> time will tell. stephanie, thank you. stay safe. jim frederick is joining me, international editor of "time" magazi magazine. here we are in to the cease-fire territory. talking 24 hours ago -- >> yeah. >> thinking it was going to happen at that point. but egypt is basically the tent pole in supporting this and sponsoring and overseeing the implementation of this. how much stability is this going to provide to the ongoing talks of trying to have a durable out come? >> i think this is a great first step. the ce

the three benchmarks articulated by the united nations, that is recognizing my country's right to exist, abandoning terrorism and violence, supporting peace, then the door is open to negotiations. but the bad news is i see no evidence of that so far. on the contrary, i think in many ways hamas is stuck in a very extreme position and the evidence for that we saw today. we had the bombing in tel aviv on the bus. and hamas praised that. they welcomed that. they said that was legitimate. and so as long as hamas is doing that sort of thing it is difficult to be optimistic. but if they do change, if they do moderate. if they fundamentally reserve some of their very hard line positions, the door can be opened. >> i mean, do you accept, though, obviously in the last eight or nine days, 30 times as many palestinians have been killed as israelis? so clearly, there is bloodshed on both sides. and israel is not blameless here, either. >> i think the most important issue, though, is what were we doing? i mean, this whole operation was not to take territory or change regimes or something grandiose li
for the first time at the united nations yesterday. she defended what she said on the sunday talk shows about the attack on the consulate in benghazi. >> when discussing the attacks against our facilities in benghazi, i relied solely and squarely on the information provided to me by the intelligence community. i made clear that the information was preliminary and that our investigations would give us the definitive answers. >> i want to bring in margie omaro and joe watkins, republican strategist. good morning to both of you. happy thanksgiving. >> good morning. >> this is time of peace and tranquility among the family. let's ask you this. with her having come out now, she's saying what in her own defense what she was given, her talking points, what she was told to say, intelligence given at the time. does this put any of this to rest, joe? >> i think that this is a good start for ambassador rice. she's somebody that has an impeccable background, phi beta kappa rhodes scholar, somebody well regarded in the international community and the united states. she could be very well our next nominee
holliday the former u.s. ambassador for special political affairs to the united nations. he's currently the president and ceo of the meridian international center, which is a public diplomacy organization. ambassador let me start with the news of the shooting along the border between gas zba and israel. how troubling is an incident like this? and how perilous is it, really, for this fragile, fragile cease-fire? >> well, good morning. the local level, it's obviously very troubling, and there are, you know, lives at stake, and there's this delicate balance on the cease-fire. but in the bigger picture, this is -- there's a lot invested in this cease-fire, at the political level and it appears to be at this point more of the typical border incident category kind of problem rather than a directed violation from either side of the cease-fire. i think that's what we're going to have to watch for is what happens next. >> a lot of credit ins are looking at this agreement as a short-term fix, a band-aid that will last as long as, say, hamas manages to rearm and then perhaps start shooting rockets
in government circles. >> reporter: on his release, he will be given 34 lashes. this fall, the united nations human rights office declared that iranian authorities have embarked on a "severe clampdown" on journalists and human rights activists in a run-up to next june's iranian presidential elections. the iranian delegation to the u.n. dismissed the report as unfair and biased, and said the republic has worked wholeheartedly to realize the rights of its citizens. in an email to the newshour, the iranian u.n. mission claimed the report leveled "general allegations in the absence of authentic and reliable evidence aimed to serve propaganda." the communication also stated that political parties "enjoy the right of freedom of speech and free activities", and the iranians accused the u.s. of "a long list of gross and systematic violations of human rights, both at home and abroad." regime critics say they risk years in prison for their actions. abdolfattah soltani, an attorney and co-founder of the defenders of human rights center, tried to represent leaders of the minority b'hai faith. his daughte
into the streets of gaza city to celebrate. >> susan rice going public. the u.s. ambassador to the united nations is now defending the comments she made in the aftermath of the september 11th terrorist attack in benghazi. rice explaining why she initially suggested that the attacks were sparked by protests over that anti-muslim film. >> ilied solely and squarely on the information provided to me by the intelligence community. i made clear that the information was preliminary and that our investigations would give us the definitive answers. >> rice says she believes everyone, especially intelligence officials, were acting in good faith to provide the best assessment of the events in benghazi to the american people. >> sectarian violence erupting in pakistan. a series of bombings has killed at least 31 people. in the deadliest attack, a taliban suicide bomber killed 23 people in an attack on a shiite muslim procession in rawalpindi. this is the holiest month of the year for shiites. >>> and this picture cost two women their jobs. take a close look there. one apparently made an obscene gesture at ar
was approved, unanimously, or very strongly for her united nations position. to suggest that anyone is judging her on anything based other than on her record i think would be a big mistake, kirsten, i don't know what you think about that. >> clearly they've decided that that is the line of attack that they are going to take. have you have people like james klyburn, he's hardly a bit player,aying senator mccain is basically a racist for opposing her. it's demeaning to her. and she is a rhode scholar, a high ranking official even in the clinton administration. it's very demeaning to her to even do this. i think it's been set up that way. my point earlier was obama is emboldened by seeing that the media is just so complacent or stupid or whatever it is that they will not put together the pieces of how this story does not add up. it's so -- there are so many problems witness, but he thinks he can send the person up who he had be the face of benghazi, put her under oath and that it's not going to make any difference, it's not going to cause any problems for him says something either about his arrog
citizen. a liver in -- live in new york and cover the united nations. that is how i look at it from a national approach. what everyone to think about is going on in the region now, everyone is looking at washington, what will the new president of the united states, the president of a second term, do about what he promised to do. what looked at the 3 obama promises. the first promise was when he said he would not find a solution. -- let's look at the 3 obama promises. second from a that the president of the united states was when he said the united states would never allow iran to be a nuclear power. this is unprecedented, where there are bright -- but the right or wrong. this is a statement made by the president more than once. this was the collection of promises made to the indian prime minister. how has president obama of filled the promise? is he going to absolutely implement this? and what are the israelis do we? from my point of view, one of the activated parts of the operation is that they are giving hamas a leading creating a new dynamic for shaping the new dynamics and shapi
themselves. this isyoxymoron. this is an absurdity. this is a vital national security interest that iran doesn't have nuclear wps weapons, but we can't want that more than anybody else. is this really a vital interest of the united states. in which case we have to throw our weight behind it and tailor our policies around it with less deference to domestic -- >> what does that mean? in a concrete sense what does it look like? >> in a concrete sense, it means not letting the israelis drag us into overreacting to palestinian diplomatic moves at the u.n. it means understanding that we have a choice here that the palestinians are facing a choice between the p.a. and the plo. their leadership in ramallah. and their strategy, versus hamas's strategy of arms struggle and we and the israelis play a huge role in determining how that goes. one of the reasons that hamas is, is may be able to spin this in a huge and lasting political victory unlike last time. unlike in 2008-2009, is the lack of contrast with the west bank and the reason for that is that western aid, american and european aid has been
transported to jail. >>> u.s. ambassador total united nations, suzy rice is defending her first account of the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. >> i relied solely and squarely on the information provide to me by the intelligence community. i made clear that the information was preliminary. and that our investigations would give us the definitive answers. >> initially , rice had attributed the attack on the u.s. consulate to a mob angry about an anti muslim video, and not a terrorist attack. much of the criticism about the explanation for the attack has been directed at rice, because she is believed to be obama's top chows to replace hillary clinton. >>> we're learning more about the tress of -- investigation of david petraeus, investigators want to know if he instructed staff to give his biographer, class bide offerings. some accepted they are by petraeus and others to provide military records and other documents to broadwell for her work. petraeus resigned at cia director after admitting to an extramarital affair with broadwell. >>> hostess has the okay to start fading into histo
.s. ambassador to the united nations. she's per sued u.s. interests including passage to revolutions, strict sanctions on iran and north korea. white house aids say she is favored by president obama to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. rice's record, doing her job doesn't matter much to senator john mccain. what matters to the republican from arizona is rice went on television in the days after the deadly attacks in libya that killed chris stephens and three other americans and repeated the information the cia provided at the time. >> susan rice should have known better. if she didn't know better, she's not qualified. she has a lot of explaining to do. >> if appointed clears her of wrong doing besides not being very bright. i would do everything in my power from her being the united states secretary of state. >> i suppose i understand the republicans feel the administration hasn't paid a high political price for the benghazi attack. rice's performance on a few sunday shows should disqualify her. the president addressed this after he was reelected. >> if senator mccain and senato
rice of the united nations for going out on television and saying that story. clearly was not true, from what we know now, but guys like you are being criticized by, for instance, members of the congressional black caucus. they say that you and john mccain are sexist and racist as well for criticizing ambassador rice. >> well, when you can't answer the question, you attack the questioner. the only color i'm worried about when it comes to benghazi is red. blood red. the death of four americans. what motivates senator mccain and myself is that we were in libya last september. we came back and wrote an op ed piece that if we don't form a national army to replace these militias, libya is going to break apart. and the sad story here is not just the four dead americans, which is heart breaking, the libyan people want to move forward and this leading from behind by obama, we've done nothing to help them mr. an army to replace the militia. >> steve: absolutely. we've simply got to get to the bottom of this because as you said, four americans are dead here. senator lindsey graham, joining u
morning. a day of negotiations and talks with the secretary of state clinton. the united nations secretary-general and the egyptian president. there is still no cease-fire announced thus far. but while they're carrying out their talks, the violence on both side of the border have intensified as well. gaza came under heavy fire overnight from the air and warships in the sea, pummeling hamas' command and control center, the rocket launcher by the ied. the defense forces say they have destroyed 50 underground rockets in sight. the ied says the rockets were fired from gaza to the populated areas in israel. fortunately they were intercepted by the iron dome. so it's a very precarious situation. >> you are right, lama, a strange 24 hours. early word yesterday that a cease-fire was in the making. as you said, the bombings continued here. so where do things stand now in terms of any chance for a cease-fire? >> well, the secretary of state meeting, the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu quite late last night. the message is that the escalation of the violence here. and to support a long-term
's choice to take president clinton's slot. the united nations had nothing to do with this. it would've been a better choice to go out on the sunday shows and maybe the secretary of defense or the secretary of state or the director of national intelligence, a very odd choice in my decision. i do believe it was her responsibility to know the origins of these talking points. i think that should've been something she should have been asking questions about. martha: you can go in front of a microphone and say whatever is on the paper without taking responsibility. let me ask you about the administration. do you think that they wanted this way? you think they want the patriots scandal to happen? confusion among americans? they are blaming james clapper and susan rice. >> the bottom line is they feel they can deal with us now but they didn't want it to happen before the election. now i think they feel somewhat insulated because it's after the election and that's the shame of the thing speech you now the president is saying don't blame susan rice, blame me. make it so much, peter brookes. happy tha
, that left four americans dead. speaking at the united nations wednesday, rice said she was working off the best information she was given. >> when discussing the attacks against our facilities in benghazi, i relied solely and squarely on the information provided to me by the intelligence community. i made clear that the information was preliminary. >> rice considered a top candidate to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state has been criticized by top republicans for initially saying the attacks in benghazi were not terror attacks. >>> more than 18,000 people will soon be out of a job. now that a judge approved the liquidation wednesday of iconic hostess brands. the company will be shutting down operations immediately after failing to reach a deal with a striking bakers union. but don't say good-bye to the twinkie just yet. hostess says it's optimistic buyers will swoop in to produce some of the most popular products. >>> and if you were one of the millions of people who hit the road or rails this thanksgiving, let's hope you were not stuck in this mess. thousands of cars were ba
